Every year, graduates of the two-year New Media Production & Design course that I teach feature their work in a two-night showcase. Not everyone can attend the event at MacDonald Hall, and sometimes those that do want a beeline to the graduates who can help them most in new business and contract work. To facilitate that, I highlight the best students in web development each year: those featured above.

If you do have the opportunity to meet these graduates in person, I strongly encourage you to do so: the event is from 3 - 7 PM on April 15 and 16 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Next week, I'll profile some of the excellent designers graduating from this year's class.
